The Forum Sponsor sells them brand new! They aren't cheap but then you are basically buying and aftermarket convertible top complete with the frame! And in spite of what it says, they fit all the way through 1996 models. They only stipulate 80-91 because of the changes to rear seat belts and high-mount stop light additions in 1992. The soft top the Graveyard sells will FIT, it just renders the shoulder belts and the high-mount center stop lamp inoperative so they can't market them to anything later than 1991 models.

To remove the top, you can pull the hardware then with the rear seat folded all the way up towards the back of the front seats you can get under it and walk it back off the bed with it balanced like a turtle shell on your back. It takes a little practice but I do it all the time. You still need at least one other person to assist with getting down from the bed rails after you have cleared the rear guide pins.
What was all that you did to do this?

Post twenty seven sums it up for the most part.
An upholstery shop could make the tonneau fabric to fit
or
you could do it if you learn how.

Notice the handles he put on the outside? Great idea.

This is most excellent! Definitely going on the list of mods after the brakes, windows, exhaust & locks are fixed...
Was that a self-fabricated solution?
